Microsoft first introduced the Aero Shake feature in Windows 7. Except for the one you’re currently holding with your mouse, this minimizes all open app windows on your desktop. Hold the title of an application and shake it from the mouse to minimize all but one of them. That’s it; all other open windows will automatically minimize. Simply shake the device once more to return the minimized windows to their original position.
If you want to look at the desktop without minimizing or closing applications, Aero Shake is a fantastic feature. On Windows 11, it’s known as “Title bar window shake” and is turned off by default. If you want to use it, you must first enable it.
How to Turn On or Off Aero Shake on Windows 11
On Windows 11, the “Aero Shake” or “Title bar window shake” feature is disabled by default. You must first enable or activate it before you can use it.
- To access the Settings app, press the Windows + I keys on the keyboard at the same time, or use any other method.
- Select the System category from the left sidebar when Windows Settings opens.
- Now, on the right-hand pane, scroll down and click the Multitasking tab.
- Toggle the “Title bar window shake” option’s toggle switch to On.
- The “Aero Shake” or “Title bar windows shake” feature on your Windows 11 PC is approved after you complete the steps above. If you want to disable this feature on your computer in the future, go back to step 4 and toggle the toggle switch next to the “Title bar windows shake” option to the Off position.
You can now exit the Settings app. No further action is required because the changes are automatically saved on your computer.
